I found a freebie here. I just know you can modify it as you wish (higher neck in the back, center back zipper, skirt a bit fuller).

One good thing about sewing for children, it can be a stash buster.

The bad thing about sewing for children, if you don't work fast, they will out grow the project!

Yup, that Burda looks like a winner. I've found Burda sizing to run a little big on my toddlers, just FYI.
Is the "original" dress from J Crew? just guessing from the photo style.

I made this one last month, on the pink Formica countertop of a rented beach condo. Corners were cut. It was a frothy pink success though, in Anna Maria Horner voile...true to size, but runs long for a wee one...

Check out the kids section in any Burda magazine you have and you are bound to find something similar to trace. Even if you only find a bodice shape you like, the lower part is only a gathered rectangle.

I just finished New Look 6115. It isn't as simple as the one you have, but I adore it so much I will be making at least 3 more! I dressed it up using suiting fabric and adding lining and netting, but I bet it is just as cute in cotton! I used size 3 for Hailey who is 2 and a half- the 2 would work for Dia.
